Ice Cream!!!

Just some random pictures of the kids with ice cream from the local parlor on the last day of Memorial weekend vacation.

News on the adoption front, our agency has gone to bat for us and submitted all the documents and info pertaining to Hanzhong and requested expedited LOA for us. I am not sure we will get it, but at least we are trying!! I am letting it go, if this is meant to be it will happen, otherwise I will wait on His perfect timing knowing that God will take care of our sweet baby girl until we can get there. Borrowing from this blogger a verse that is very close to my heart right now.

Come to me and rest in my loving presence. You know that this day will bring difficulties, and you are trying to think your way through those trials. As you anticipate what is ahead of you, you forget that I am with you - now and always. Rehearsing your troubles results in experiencing them many times, whereas you are meant to go through them only when they actually occur. Do not multiply your suffering in this way! Instead, come to me and relax in my peace. I will strengthen you and prepare you for this day, transforming your fear into confident trust. (Matthew 11:28-30; Joshua 1:5, 9)

I pray for you all and Grace daily. What a wonderful scripture! I pray you will find peace in knowing God IS with you each step of the way.

I love the ice cream photo on the ground! Somehow memories of melted ice cream always seem better than clean ones!!

I can't wait to see if they expedite your LOA! We will pray and you are right it is HIS hands!
